SERIES PREMIERE

WITH THE ROMANCE GONE FROM THEIR MARRIAGE, LENA AND MARTIN DIVORCE BUT DECIDE TO STAY TOGETHER IN SEPARATE AREAS OF THEIR HOME IN ORDER TO BE THERE FOR THEIR KIDS, ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF ABC'S NEW COMEDY, 'SPLITTING UP TOGETHER'

From executive producers Ellen DeGeneres, Emily Kapnek ("Suburgatory"), Jeff Kleeman ("Little Big Shots") and Dean Holland ("Parks and Recreation") comes "Splitting Up Together," the story of Lena (Jenna Fischer, "The Office,") and Martin (Oliver Hudson, "Scream Queens"), whose marriage is reignited by their divorce. The series premieres on TUESDAY, MARCH 27 (9:30-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Lena and Martin were once madly in love. But, like many marriages, time and circumstance eventually took their toll and the romance disappeared. Lena, the perfectionist, fell into the role of caretaker for everyone, including Martin. Martin felt he could never do anything right and gave up making the effort. Finding themselves in a platonic marriage and acting more like a pair of camp counselors wrangling their kids than a couple hopelessly in love, they decide that everyone's lives would be better served if they got a divorce. Still wanting the best for their three kids and facing a daunting real estate market, the couple decides to "Bird Nest" instead. One parent will live in the house as the "on-duty" parent taking care of the kids, while the "off-duty" parent will live in the detached garage, doing whatever he or she pleases while switching off every other week. Could being apart ultimately lead to them getting back together?

In the premiere episode, "Pilot," after breaking the news to their friends and family about their divorce, Lena has to deal with her son Mason's growing pains. Meanwhile, Martin, still feeling guilty about refusing to dance with Lena at their wedding, secretly tries to atone for his oversight and surprise his ex-wife with new moves.

"Splitting Up Together" stars Jenna Fischer as Lena, Oliver Hudson as Martin, Bobby Lee as Arthur, Lindsay Price as Camille, Olivia Keville as Mae, Van Crosby as Mason and Sander Thomas as Milo.

Guest starring are Geoff Pierson as Henry, Kelsey Asbille as Charlotte and Lucas Near-Verbrugghe as Dr. Kasper.

"Pilot" was written by Emily Kapnek, based on the Danish format by Mette Heeno and directed by Dean Holland.

"Splitting Up Together" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with a 5.1 channel surround sound. This program carries a TV-PG, DL parental guideline.
